This volume, which completes the Second Edition of this widely respected three-volume set, continues the tradition of providing detailed and concise laboratory instructions for the preparation of organic and inorganic polymers. Updates are provided on the preparation of various types of polymers including olefin-sulfur dioxide copolymers, polythioesters, sulfide polymers, polyisocyanates, polyoxyalkylhydroxy compounds, polyvinyl carbazole, polyvinyl acetate, polyallyl esters, and polyvinyl flouride. The procedures were chosen on the basis of safety and to be representative of preparation methods for a general class of polymers. Fundamental and practical information on polymer synthesis is combined with extensive references and reviews of the patent literature.
